Woes ot Drunkeness
But they also have erred through
wine and through strong drink
are out of the way; the priest and
the prophet have erred through
strong drink, they are swallowed
up of wine, they are out of the way
through strong drink; they err in
vision, they stumble in judgement.
• —lsiali 28-7.
Isaiah, most brilliant of the Old
Testament poets, left many bright
sayings on record, but nothing su
perior to his denunciation of the
drink habit. This was the first
temperance sermon ever delivered
and Isaiah was the first prohibition
agitator. The Israelites, as their
history shbws, suffered much from
the vice of intoxication. Noah
Was scarcely off his ark until he be
came beastly drunk. Fine fellow
to start a new race with. It was
because of their debauch at Shit
/ tim with the Moabite women that
"Jehovah's wrath was kibdled"
against the Tioters and to this
drunken orgy was due the subse
quent extermination of the Midian
ltes. This first "salocn row," as
it may well be called, was the
prime cause of the most brutal,
cruel and inexcusable war recorded
in the history of the ' 'chosen peo
ple." After they had settled in
Palestine, grape raising was the
principal agricultural industry, and
they drank entirely too much of
their own wine. By the time of
Isaiah, which was in the eight cen
tury B. C., it is evident that drunk
euess in its worst form was Iriaroi
ingly prevalent. It will be noticed
iif the extract above that not only
the people, but the priests and
prophets, were addicted to strong
drink and severely denounced by
the old temperance reformer.
Twenty seven eventful centuries
have passed since Isaiah delivered
his sermon on the "Woes of Drunk
eness," and we are still fighting
the sama awful curse. The twen
tieth century sees * battle royal
in progress between the people of
the United States and the entreucb
ep forces of intoxicating liquor.
Never before were the prospects so
bright for victory over the "demon
of the still."
The coils are being closed around
the monster in every State of the
Union, and it is hoped in time that
the life may be cboked.-out of him
entirely. The temperance laws
grow more and more drastic, and
' the determination of the masses of
the people for their enforcement
becomes stronger everV day. With
in the last tew months three Cir
cuit Conrt Judges in Indiana have
decided that the saloon is a. nui
sance, a foe of peace and 'morals,
and that the State has no right to
license it any more than it wohld
have a right to license murder.
; What is still more remarkable,
gy two Boards of County Commissi
oners have refused to license .sal
oons on the same ground.
It is pleasing to note that far
mers aa a class are overwhelming
ly on the side ot sobriety ia this
titanic struggle against the chief
foe of mankind and principal
obstruction in the pathway of civi-'
lizatiou. The rural districts are
practically all anti aaloon, and
have either driven it out or are
prating to do 00. S*»n th«*
abominations will be confined ex
- x
. v. .
clusively to the large cities There,
we are sorry to the vice still
lingers iu its worst form. Go to
any fashionable hotel between the
hours of 11 and 3 o'clock and you
will find well-dressed men and
women iff the cafes, eating and
drinking. There around the mid
night table, enthroned between
Bacchus and Venus, druukeu men
hic-cough out immoral arguments
and obscene jests.
There sharpers and bullies and
hard-hearted, impudent debauches
nightly hold forth foi the edifica
tion of the rising generation.
Here may be seen beardless youths;
still in college, reeling around the
wine gfaSfc-while women ot ques
tionable Character indulge in weak
laughter ana, maudlin applause.
Here the night-rounders, "men of
the world," the libertine
and the roue, lie in wait for the vic
tims that are to be baited with wine
There are many Evelyn Thaw s
who are not ftfund out, who do not
get into the courts as the result of
murder. In every great city of
this Union there are to be found
fashionable dens, *s infamous as
that of Stanford White, where
drunken orgies are indulged in by
men and women with foreheads of
bronze, hearts as hard as the neth
er millstone and tongues set on fire
of hell.—American Farmer.

The average man cannot afford
to employ a physician for every

afford to neglect them, as so slight
an injury as the scratch of a phi

must from necessity be his own

( After Halstead Murry and Rog*
, er Barnes left school, they each
; applied for a place iu the First
j National Bank, in Hughestown,
the small city, where they lived.
Roger got the place and ar
ound to (ell Halstead about it.
"Sorry for you, old fallow," he
, said cheerfully, "bnt there was
only one place, you see, and I had"
the pull. You know Mr. Stevens
is one of the directors, and my
uncle worked for him for years.
Uncle Sam satd a good word for
me, and there I am."
Mr. Murry was -blacking his
shoes wheu Halstead told him
about Roger's visit. He finished
the sideof the shoe he was nibbing,
and then, as he dipped his brush
in the blacking box again, he ask
ed with a quizzical smile. "What
, did you say to that?"
"Why," Hal laughed, a little,
"I said I was glad for him. That
r was all. There seemed to be
nothing else to say."
"That's right," said his father,
, aa he fell to rubbing the second
, shoe. "We'll have to trv to catch
hold of some other rope, boy."
But no other opening appeared,
. and Halstead was feeling rather
, blue, when he received a cartf ask
ing him to call at the bank, one
day. He went promptly, and
came back with the great news
that Robert had left, and he was
! engaged in Roger's place.
A week afterwards he found his

Clara smiled. "I see," she said,

Harrisburg, Pa., June 6.—The
plants in the platform indorsing
Senator Knox for the presidency is
as follows:
' Pennsylvania has just pride in
presenting to her sister states as a
worthy successor to Theodore
Roosevelt her distinguished son,
who from the beginning was fore
most in counsel aud most effective
in practical support of the policies
for the regulation of corporate
power J»as so endeared the
ntnmt to the people of this
country. It was Philander Chase
Knox who in 1902 pointed out that
an amendment to the constitution
of the United State was unnecessary
to enable Congress to redress the
wrongful exercise ot power by cor
porations in their relation to inter
state commerce, and who made
that opinion good by the legal
proceedings which he successfully
prosecuted for the violation of the
interstate coinmerca and antitrust
laws of the nation; and also by the
amendments to those laws whicn he
recommended and prepared and
which subsequently met the ap
proval of Congress.
"The record of Philander Chase
Knox is a matter of history. Of
him President Roosevelt said in
his speech at the dedication of the
new state capitol in October, 1906:
During the last few years the nat
ional government has taken very
strong strides in the direction of
exercising and securing adeduate
control over the great corporations,
and it was under the leadership of
one of the most honored public
men in our country, one Penn
sylvania's most eminent sous, the
present senator aud then Attorney-
Oeueral Knox that the new de
parture was begun. .. "
"We are prohd, of Mr. Knox's
resord as attorneyNgeneral. We
are proud of his recorH as senator,
in which office he is displaying the
same qualities of patriotism, integ
rity and the devotion of his abilities
to the cause of good government
and good citizenship. His capacity
and experience, his motives and
purposes, his high character in
public and private life fit him for
the highest office.
' Believing in him aud support
ing him earnestly as we do we
hereby indorse him 011 behalf of
the Republican party of this com
monwealth for the great office of
President of the United States,
anj we have the honor of present
ing-him now to the Republicans of
our sister states as Pennsylvania's
candidate for the presidency be
fore the Republican nomination
convention in June, 1908."
Senator Pox, «who is stopping at
the Waldorf-Astoria, learned to
night of his indorsement by the
Harrisburg convention, though the
press despatches. Having read
these, including an abstract of the,
platform adopted, he said to a re
"I am deeply sensible of the
great honor done me by fallow-
Republicans of Penusylvauia.
"In their convention, composed ot
delegates elected directly by the
peoble, they have increased my
many obligations to them by coup
ling with the indorsement ot the
administration of Theodore Roose
velt the suggestion of ray name as
his successor.
"I note the convention's reference
to the fact that as attorney-general
and senator was privileged to aid
in the formulation and carrying
Sqto legislation and judicial decis
ion those just policies for the pro
tection of the peoble which have so
greatly endeared President* Roos
velt to the people. I valne tW ac
tion of the convention approving
such public service as I have been
enabled to render in the past with
a satisfaction not exceeded by my
gratitude for the unsolicited pledge
of support for higher honors and
graver duties for the future.
"I have too profound a sense ot
the dignity of the chief magistracy,
and too intimate a knowledge of its
labors and responsibilities to have
sought these indorsement. If, how

Republicans and the reasons they
